zoneminder notwork with mysql8

Post by stonygate » Sat Dec 14, 2019 12:31 pm

Hi, I recently moved from ubuntu 8.04 to 8.10
during the installation of the new system, I kept the configurations of the previous one, with the only exception of mysql that from version 5 I moved to 8.
I immediately had problems with all the programs that used mysql, I proceeded with the complete uninstallation of mysql encountering not a few problems.
I managed to install it correctly, it seems to work correctly except for zoneminder.
if I log in it gives me an error: Invalid username or password.
restarting zonemninder from terminal and using journalctl -xe gives me this error:

Code: Select all

[zma_m1] [Can't run query: You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version of the syntax right
what can I do for correct it?

For now go back to Ubuntu 18.04, which will mean you have to start over. I have not been successful getting any version of Zoneminder to run on Ubuntu 19.10 with MySQL or Mariadb. One of these days I'll get the time to do some work on it after I get all the projects around the new house up to date.

@bbunge

I did not know about ZM not running in 19.10...but I do have it running in Void Linux which is using the very latest mariaDB. The main issue I think is the mysql query functions have some syntax depreciated for example replace every mysql_* function call with its equivalent mysqli_*

on this Void system I am running Hiawatha, php 7.4 and the 10.1.30-MariaDB Source distribution and ZM 1.33.15 zmNinja 1.3.082

Well we all know Mariadb is different from Mysql. I tried 19.10 with Mariadb 10.4 and did not get Zoneminder to work but not because of database errors.

I have successfully installed Zoneminder 1.33 with Maridb 10 on Ubuntu 19.10.
Please see the link for installation details.
https://bkjaya.wordpress.com/2019/11/03 ... th-mriadb/

You can also use docker Zoneminder on Ubuntu 19.10 as an alternative
https://hub.docker.com/r/bkjaya1952/docker-zoneminder

According to Isaac Connor , mysql 8 problem with Zoneminder has been solved now.Please refer the following link

Better install package:

https://wiki.zoneminder.com/Ubuntu_Serv ... der_1.33.x

Thanks bkjaya1952 for the fix! There are some things in your procedure that are not needed.

Edit: Working on an install using MySQL8. May have a fix for the Zoneminder package not setting up a user...

You do not need to add the timezone in php.ini

Next, we should get this to work with the enhanced mysql security! Until that happens I recommend sticking with Mariadb.

Yes . You can change TIMEZONE later under Options/System/TIMEZONE in latest Zoneminder versions.
The use of Maradb instead of Mysql may not improve the security level of data base. In my case , I have used a password for mysql-server-8

The main problem is the present PHP release make errors with the "caching_sha2_password" introduced in the Mysql 8 by default .
Please refer the following link
https://www.php.net/manual/en/mysqli.requirements.php
Therefore , we will have to use "mysql_native_password" method in Mysql 8.
There is always risks in any system .No one can build a 100% foolproof system. I am of the opinion that ,there is no harm in finding ways and means to use present Mysql 8 & php with Zoneminder and share the experience with others , without waiting someone to fix the problems.

In order to have clean mysql-server-8.0 install , it is better to completely delete exiting mysql as follows
sudo apt remove --purge mysql-server mysql-client mysql-common
sudo apt autoremove
sudo apt autoclean
sudo rm -rf /etc/mysql

I start with a clean install every time I test. I have images of the Ubuntu and Debian releases with LAMP (either MySQL or Mariadb) which have no root passwords for the database server and no configurations beyond a basic install. So my tests with 19.10/MySQL 8 are fresh and have failed every time. I do not use a desktop version but a minimal server install.

I was able to get Zoneminder to work with MySQL 8. Your procedure is not quite right. I was able to use your basics. I will correct the procedure and post to the WIKI hopefully tomorrow. Has been a bad day for me, computer wise, until I was able to get this to work.

:lol: I am happy , you have at least slightly mentioned that you have used my basics. I have worked very hard to find the solution what you called the "basics". I think that ,the ' basics' is the most important part of the solution. I always appreciate constructive criticism . But, some people are used to copy the technical findings of others , while condemning it totally .

If you are not sure about the installation procedure , please see the following screen shots which show mysql and Zoneminder running
